North Texas Reunion - June 21 - 27, 2019
This brief RV trip was to Possum Kingdom Lake, west of Fort Worth, for the Teague-Miller Family Reunion. This was a new venue for the reunion, with recent years reunions near Lubbock. We had a good turnout for the reunion and we decided to use this venue for next year. After the reunion, we pulled our trailer west to Lake Colorado City State Park and used that as a base to visit Kay's cousins in Stanton and her friend in Odessa. Afterwards we stopped in Llano on our way back home.
[Friday] We left home about 8:00 am and traveled north on TX-99, TX-6, I-35 and I-20 to the Graford area and settled into Tranquility Cove RV Park at about 4:00 pm. We needed something from the store for the dessert we were taking to the family reunion Saturday, so we drove into Graham and shopped. Later, before sunset, we drove next door to Sky Camp, where most of the reunion attendees were staying. We visited with a few relatives that were outside.

[Saturday] Everyone met in the large meeting room at Sky Camp and our dinner arrived from the caterer at 12:00 noon. Everyone enjoyed visiting and later in the afternoon we had the reunion auction. Everyone enjoyed the excessive amount of homemade desserts that were brought. Everyone visited until it was time to break up for the day.
[Sunday] Everyone met a the Sky Camp at 10:00 am and after eating breakfast supplied by the reunion, we sang along as James sang and played his guitar for or Sunday worship music. We then listened to Molly deliver the Bible study lesson. Wells gave our message afterwards. We all met outside after the service and took the group photo. A little after noon, everyone left for their respective homes. We drove back over to Tranquility Cove, where we spent one more night.
Before supper and the early evening rain storm that moved through, we walked around the area. There were still lots of spring flowers in bloom.
[Monday] Today we left Tranquility Cove and took US-180 west to Snyder. Along the way, we saw several interesting towns that would be good to explore some on a future trip in the area, such as Breckinridge, Anson and Snyder. We went south on TX-208 to Lake Colorado City State Park, where we camped in site #52. We got to the park about 2:30 pm. It was hot, so we relaxed in the trailer until after supper. There lots of storms in the area and true to west Texas, we had some pea size hail and maybe 0.1” of rain. After the rain stopped, we walked around the camp loop and down to the lake before sundown.
[Tuesday] Today after breakfast, we left the trailer in the campground and drove west on I-20 to Stanton. There we met for lunch with Kay's cousins, Morgan and Jonama, and husband John. After lunch, they took us to show us the Connell House, which is the oldest house in Stanton. It was constructed in 1882, as a two-room home for Carmelite Priests that served at the Convent across the street. They are working to restore the home to be able to show it in the future.
After the nice visit with them, we drove further west to Odessa and met Kay's friend Carla for dinner that late afternoon. After a nice visit with her, we drove back to Lake Colorado City State Park, arriving about 8:30 pm.
[Wednesday] After breakfast today, we left Lake Colorado City State Park and drove to Llano. We arrived in the afternoon at the Llano City RV Park on the banks of the Llano River. This is a nice city park and we always stop in Llano for Cooper's BBQ. This was no exception. Later in the day near sunset, we walked along the river trail and across the bridge to the downtown square and returned.
[Thursday] Today we left Llano and drove back home. We arrived home in the mid-afternoon.
Goodbye for now,
Lawson & Kay
Blessed are the undefiled in the way, Who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, Who seek Him with the whole heart! They also do no iniquity; They walk in His ways. You have commanded us To keep Your precepts diligently. Oh, that my ways were directed To keep Your statutes! (Psalm 119:1-5 NKJV)
